Hey everybody!

A

So I’ve never done a review before, but last night was just too incredible to pass up.  I am a new fan of Anchorman, having seen the first movie just this October. But once I saw it, I fell in love. It’s lovable characters, ridiculous plot, and iconic sayings have made it one of my favorite movies. I was thrilled to learn that there was a sequel coming out in December, and it was everything I ever wanted..and more. If you’re still on the fence about going to see it, can I give you ten reasons why you should suit up and go?

1. Anchorman 2 came in like a wrecking ball. In terms of advertising, that is. Ron Burgundy himself hosted the news in North Dakota, chatted it up with Conan, took a swing at car sales, and even wrote a book {which is at the top of my Christmas list}! In addition, Ben and Jerry’s released a special flavor after the anchor’s favorite drink: Scotchy Scotch Scotch. I mean, you take over the news, you write a book, and you have your own ice cream flavor. Is there anything this legend can’t do?

He even wears the world’s greatest mustache.

 

2. Anchorman 2 is just as quotable as it’s predecessor. Before seeing Anchorman I was already familiar with “Well, that escalated quickly” and “I love lamp!” {although I’m still not really sure what that last one means…}. But be prepared for some fine quotable moments in this movie, including but not limited to:

“Who the hell is Julius Ceasar? You know I don’t follow the NBA!” —Ron Burgundy

“Pull yourself together man. You sound like a balloon.” —Champ Kind

“As a wise man once said: So?” —Ron Burgundy

“I can always guess how many jellybeans are in a jar, even if I’m wrong.” —Brick Tamland

And finally…

“I’m going to do what God put Ron Burgundy on the earth to do…”

3. Brick is back, and better than ever. Brick Tamland is my favorite character of all time. And Anchorman 2 is a very exciting time for him. After being resurrected in the greatest comeback since Lazarus, Brick re-joins the team…and finds love in the process! To be honest, I feel like the way these two interact is the same way I interact with most of the opposite sex…hence why I’ll always be single.

4. There’s a new anchor in town…and MAN is he fine! Jack Lime out of Chicago has got it all: looks, charisma, and the perfect non-existent dialect. Can he upstage the original team now that they’re in the Big Apple? You’ve got to see it to find out…

A

5. Reporting the news gets even more ridiculous. And when I mean ridiculous…I mean downright illegal. As in the whole team was arrested for smoking cocaine, on air. It’s a learning experience…right? Anyways, speaking of ridiculous news stories…

6. There’s a shoutout to WISCONSIN in one of the major points of the story. There’s a major car chase that Burgundy reports on, and it takes place in none other than Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Glad they didn’t forget about us as we slowly freeze to death in the tundra.

A

7. Ron and Veronica have THE MOST ADORABLE SON OF ALL TIME. I did NOT see this coming, but Walter is the most perfect and adorable bundle of joy that you will ever see.

A

 

Just look how perfect he is.

Isn’t it precious?

8. You still won’t understand why the majority of the humor in the movie is even funny. For example…

This.

And this.

A

 

Oh, and some of these.

A

 

I’m laughing. I’m laughing and I don’t know why.

9. There’s another showdown…and this one’s better than ever. Everyone remembers the larger than life showdown between the news teams in San Diego. But what if I told you that this battle featured Will Smith, Tina Fey, Kanye West, Liam Nesson, and…Stonewall Jackson? You’ve got to be there to see it.

At least Brick brought the trident back.
At least Brick brought the trident back.

 

10. There’s a musical number and an ending that will warm even the hardest of hearts. We’re talking a wedding {!}, a very important piano recital, and the return of a shark that Burgundy and his son nursed back to health.

A

Although I’m not sure that Anchorman 2 will ever come to match the fame of its predecessor, I will say that for a new Anchorman fan, it was everything I ever wanted and more. It’s charming, outrageous, and just plain old fun.

I will be back to reporting my traditional news after this post, but until then…you stay classy, Internet.
